Fire Damage Clean-up
You've had a fire. The fire department has actually come, put the fire out and all you see is one big mess. Upon closer examination concerns come.
I. What approach do we utilize to eliminate the soot and charcoal to assess the damage?
- High pressure water blasting leaves behind water in electrical components, equipment and insulation, if not effectively gotten rid of will cause undesirable rust and rot, increasing clean-up, damage and long term upkeep expenses.
- Soda blasting leaves water and soda behind, which requires additional cleanup, increasing cleanup, damage and long term maintenance expenses.
- Sand blasting leaves abrasive blast media behind, which if not tidied up correctly continues to trigger damage in electrical elements, gears and bearings. It continues to fall from horizontal surfaces, fractures and beams years after the task is done, increasing clean-up, damage and long term
- Dry ice blasting is the ultimate surface area cleaning procedure, it leaves no secondary waste stream behind. The only clean-up after the dry ice blasting task is done is the elimination of the particles brought on by the fire.
II. How do we remove the soot, charcoal and smoke movie from masonry and steel surface areas?
- Again this is an outstanding application for solidified carbon dioxide blasting. See the motion picture clips on our web site to see how dry ice blasting cleans soot, smoke and charcoal from different types of surface areas.
III. Will we have the ability to eliminate that horrible smoke smell?
- The removing of the odor is accomplished by getting rid of the smell source and/or sealing the smell source to encapsulate it. Dry ice blasting eliminates the soot, charcoal and smoke film, which is the odor source, from available areas.
- During a fire air currents carry smoke and soot into fractures, openings and areas not in close proximity to the fire itself, additional cleansing and/or sealing of these locations and unattainable areas might be needed.
IV. Can we achieve our cleanup without adding threats to our environment?
- Dry ice blasting is safe and ecologically friendly. Dry ice is pure CO2 in its strong state, it is in its gaseous state in the air around us.
- Dry ice blasting is non-toxic, non-conductive and there is no staff Water Restoration Colorado Springs Co member direct exposure to hazardous cleaning chemicals or solutions. Dry ice blasting meets the guidelines of the USDA, EPA, and the FDA.
You've had a fire. The fire department has come, put the fire out and all you see is one big mess.- Dry ice blasting is safe and environmentally friendly. Dry ice is pure CO2 in its strong state, it is in its gaseous state in the air around us. Green plants take CO2 from the air and offer off oxygen.
